We are totally happy with our bull sale lineup this year, the sires above represent the top end of the angus breed going forward. As the breed moves away from the harder doing, slab sided, large bulls, you will start seeing more of the type that we are presenting.
If you haven’t viewed our bulls we would welcome you to come and see them at our Open day. They are certainly different to what you will see around.
We have religiously followed the moderate frame, easy doing, deep, easy calving path. We observed many years ago the problems Angus breeders were causing themselves in the USA and consequently in Australia, and did a rethink of what we were being told about selecting for single traits, namely- IMF and growth. And yes they marble, for all of you who are still being advised to buy on figures alone.
Angus cattle are natural marblers and we consider this trait when selecting sires, but it isn’t our driver…Don’t sacrifice all the critical traits for a set of numbers. ( That you may, or may not be paid for)
We sold old cows last year and the kill figures came back at IMF around 7. That should satisfy the marbling enthusiasts.
We injected quite a bit of the famous SAV Angus bloodlines about 13 years ago and we witnessed the difference in type, first hand, away from the bulls we were able to secure at the time. Over the years we have seen the USA change their focus back to a more moderate animal that is functional and balanced. And it has taken a while….but Aus is catching on.
Anyway, we would love to see you at our Open Day and have a chat about our program and yours.
